Laying on of hands is one of the basic tenets of the Christian faith. By it, we may transmit God's blessing and authority and commission someone for service. Discover this Biblical doctrine!
The Holy Spirit presents to us in Hebrews 6:1–2 the basic tenets of the Christian faith—the fifth of which is "laying on of hands.2 We find this practice in the first book of the Bible and extending through the entire history of God's people.
By it, we may transmit God's blessing and authority and commission someone for service by recognizing and endorsing God's choice.
In the New Testament, the laying on of hands was used to:
- Impact healing
- Transmit the power of the Holy Spirit
- Commission church servants (deacons)
- Send out apostles
- Appoint elders
- And impart spiritual gifts
Derek concludes by issuing a warning about the dangers of spiritual contamination and commending the safeguards of prayer and humility.
